From the customer review:

Amazingly crafted book and excellent service. Alex kept the communication from the designing of the book to the process of delivery. He went through the extra miles to meet a fast production time and without compromising quality. There was a gaff with the delivery which was not of his fault, he kept with the updates and made sure the package arrives. And still it arrived earlier. The details of the book are fascinating, this object of art is a display masterpiece in itself. Five stars overall – and then some more.
